MOSCOW (BNS): The Russian Defence Ministry has awarded a contract to Irkut Corporation for the supply of Su-30SM multi-role fighters as part of the State Defence Order for 2016-2018.

The contract entails the delivery of more than 30 Su-30SM fighters to the Russian Air Force by the end of 2018, the state-run United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) said in a statement last month.

Irkut is a subsidiary of the UAC.

The Su-30SM is a multi-purpose "4++"-generation highly-manoeuvrable fighter jet designed for achievement of air supremacy.

The warplanes have been produced for the Russian Ministry of Defence since 2012.
